The NFL will not fine Tampa Bay Buccaneers safety Dashon Goldson for his hit against Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Jaron Brown during last Sunday's game, according to ESPN.
League executive Merton Hanks reviewed the play and determined the hit did not warrant a fine. Cardinals coach Bruce Arians complained earlier this week that the helmet-to-helmet hit was "illegal." Goldson was penalized on the play.
Arians said that Goldson should be disciplined.
"Obviously, the money doesn't affect him," he said Monday. "There could've been three (penalties on Goldson) in that game."
Goldson was given a one-game suspension for his hit on New Orleans Saints running back Darren Sproles on Sept. 22, but the suspension was overturned and Goldson was levied a $100,000 fine instead.
Goldson has been penalized for a league-high 16 personal fouls since 2009.
